Submission + - DropBox actively involved in Law Enforcement investigation (wral.com)

Lester67 writes: WRAL-TV reports that a local camp counselor was recently arrested for distribution of child pornography. While "YAY!" an alleged dirtbag is off the streets, it's the manner in which he was busted that raises eyebrows as "Dropbox managers informed the center that one of its users was storing and sharing sexually explicit material..." Was he so active as to set off bandwidth flags, or does DropBox randomly check user contents looking for illegal activity? Furthermore, are those activities as cut and dried as child pornography, or has a long slow slide down a slippery slope begun?
